Choosing ancient moments of sweeping fabric and cultural swap in Spanish background, Sieburth reads novels from the Eighties (by Benito Pérez Galdós) and from the Nineteen Seventies (by Juan Goytisolo and Carmen Martín Gaite) as fictional theories concerning the impression of modernity on tradition and politics. Her research unearths that the high/low department within the cultural sphere reinforces other forms of separations—between social periods or among males and women—dear to the elite yet endangered through development.

Weaving jointly a large spectrum of various fabric, her paintings could be of curiosity to readers serious about Spanish background and literature, literary idea, pop culture, and the kin among politics, economics, gender, and the novel.
